Anything Goes Secret Pal...Spring Chicken

Anything Goes
Secret Pal

It has been a while since I posted
about my Secret Pal. 

Over on Paper Craft Planet
there is a group called
Anything Goes...
and it is what it says.
There is no featured artist.

Well the Anything Goes has
Secret Pals.
We were all matched up with someone
and we are to send them 5 cards
within a year. 
Of course it has snowballed
in a good way.

While the cards are the only requirement
many people have sent gifts to their
Secret Pal. 
In addition,
there are Cole's helpers
(Cole set the Secret Pals up),
as well as a Spring Chicken.

A Spring Chicken!?!?
Yeap I received a card that was
Spring Chicken.

It appears to be from
South Africa!!

I have receieved cards from
Canada and Indiana.

I also received birthday cards from
several places.

It is so much fun to find
surprises in the mail box

HappiLeigh Scrappin Embossing Challenge

This week's challenge was set by
Happi Sister, Stef. 
Stef has taken a leave right now,
but we kept the challenge she was going to host.

Now I am not going to lie to you.
This challenge has scared me
since it went into the schedule. 
I don't have any embossing powders,
No embossing machine, etc.
What on earth was going to do??

I was given a ton of suggestions from friends
and I thank every one of them
for the wonderful suggestions.

In the end, I did 2 things.
First I used my Scor Pal
and scored lines up and down,
and diagonally each way. 
Than to bring the the lines out more,
I washed it all with green alcohol ink.

Than to make it look like embossing,
I used my Glaze pen
on the Happy Birthday. 

I used white tear drop pearls
and applied blue alcohol ink on them
to make them look more like water droplets. 

Here is my card...

Now remember,
you can use any image in this challenge
BUT if you use a HappiLeigh image,
you get 2 entries in the drawing.

Leigh has a great deal this month.
Purchase anything in the store
and you will receive a free
4th of July set!!
I can't wait to use it myself.

Hope to see your embossing creation!!

Hugs, love and prayers

Katie's Graduation Card

WOW!!  Katie is graduating high school.

Katie was 9 when she came into my life...
or should I say I came into her life.

It is amazing that this little girl has
turned into a wonderful young lady.

When she was in the 4th grade she didn't want to go to school.
Larry had to take her into the principals office cause she was screaming and yelling...she didn't want to go to school.

Now she is graduating high school with HONORS!

Here is the card I made for her graduation.
Challenges this card has been entered in...
Graduation card with paper tearing.
Hugs, love and prayers.
